BOSTON — Forecasters are warning of dangerous wind chill overnight as actual temperatures could challenge century-old records for Feb. 24.
The National Weather Service has issued a wind chill advisory into Tuesday morning for northern Connecticut, northern and western Rhode Island and most of Massachusetts for wind chill to 20 below, and lows from 5 above to 15 below. Northwestern Connecticut and far western Massachusetts can expect wind chills to 29 below, and temperatures between 16 below and 5 above.
The Hartford area could get 7 below, breaking a 1907 record of 4 below. Providence could see 3 below, matching 1907. Worcester could see 6 below, not as bad as the 11 below in 1894. Boston's possible 1 below also won't match 7 below from 1894.
Overall winter records for those spots are lower than temperatures expected Tuesday.
